First Thursday: Art Source Gallery Duets Exhibition Opening Reception

April 4 @ 5:00 pm 9:00 pm MDT

When a potter and a printmaker collaborate, they would create a harmonious exchange of ideas, each influencing and complementing the other’s work, resulting in a unique artistic expression. This collaboration of these very divergent artistic mediums will be featured during the month of April 2024 at Art Source Gallery. Gallery members Genie Sue Weppner, a potter specializing in Raku style, and Laurel Macdonald, an oil painter and linocut printmaker, have melded their distinctive styles into each other’s mediums, creating explosions of color and texture rarely seen together. “It’s such an honor to be using Genie Sue’s vessels in my artwork,” said Macdonald of her upcoming display. “I love her vases and mugs and have had such a fun time imagining them in different scenarios!” “Laurel’s prints are full of color which are defined by strong black lines, a design technique that I try to use in my Raku work,” Weppner said. “I always tried to imagine what it would look like if I could replicate her work on a Raku pot. I’m so grateful that she agreed to this collaboration so we could play with each other’s imagery.” Potter Genie Sue Weppner is a long-time artistic potter who is currently exploring Raku firing techniques at her Boise studio. The Raku technique is essentially when glazed ceramics are taken from the kiln while they are still glowing red hot and are then placed in a material that would be able to catch fire, such as sawdust or newspaper. This technique is used to starve the piece of oxygen, which creates a myriad of colors within the glaze. Printmaker Laurel Macdonald explores printmaking and linocuts in creating images that depict beautiful Idaho landscapes and activities. Her colorful prints are filled with energy and playfulness. As a longtime Treasure Valley artist, her work is featured in local galleries and collections as well as adorning several public spaces throughout Boise and Meridian. Join the artists at the First Thursday Opening Reception, Thursday April 4, 2024 from 5:00 to 9:00 PM. Enjoy the live music of Old Thyme. Wine and snacks are available. The exhibition will be on display at the gallery, 1516 W Grove St. (Linen District) Boise, ID 83843. More information is available at the gallery website:
